Durban - There was traffic chaos in Durban on Monday morning as protesters burned vehicles, closing Chris Hani Road, forcing motorists to take alternative routes to the Sea Cow Lake industrial area.
About 500 residents, believed to be from the nearby informal settlements, blocked off the road.
At the intersection of Sea Cow Lake and Chris Hani roads, a vehicle had been set on fire, while rubble burned at other spots.
Protesters and workers prevented from getting to work threw rocks at each other.
